The total number of ATP has been estimated between 35 and 39.
The total number of ATP is not known exactly and is due to variance in the degree of coupling between the flow of protons through the ATPase and electron transport.
ATP – Adenosine triphosphate, the energy currency of the cell are organic compounds composed of the phosphate groups, adenine and sugar ribose. These compounds provide energy for both the exergonic and endergonic processes and play an important role in cellular metabolisms.
